Redneck Candle

Ooohh...take a look at mom's Basil White Flower candle from Bath and Body Works...
She was enjoying the fragrance sooo much.  It had burned down to the last inch or so, but she wanted to improve on it and make it even more special.  So what did she do?  Here's her tutorial:  while vacuuming up in the kitchen, using a stick vac that you have to unplug and re-plug every 3 feet or so, get frustrated and yank the cord hard enough to knock the candle off the counter and shatter on the tile floor.  Kids will come running.  Except the one that is sitting on the couch, eating popcorn...
Curse the fates as you re-vacuum the kitchen, and at least be happy there wasn't a child underfoot.  Light what remains of your candle, set it on a dinner plate.  And go on about your day.  Keep calm and carry on.
And enjoy your new Redneck Candle. 
Isn't it lovely?
